    Dim xWs As Worksheet
    On Error Resume Next
LInput:
    xTCount = Application.InputBox("The number of title rows", "", "1")
    If TypeName(xTCount) = "Boolean" Then Exit Sub
    If Not IsNumeric(xTCount) Then
        MsgBox "Only can enter number", , "Kutools for Excel"
        GoTo LInput
    End If
    Set xWs = ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets.Add(Sheets(1))
    xWs.Name = "Combined"
    Worksheets(2).Range("A1").EntireRow.Copy Destination:=xWs.Range("A1")
    For i = 2 To Worksheets.Count
        Worksheets(i).Range("A1").CurrentRegion.Offset(CInt(xTCount), 0).Copy _
               Destination:=xWs.Cells(xWs.UsedRange.Cells(xWs.UsedRange.Count).Row + 1, 1)

Tip:

(1.) Your data must start from A1, if not, the code will not take effect.

(2.) Your data must have the same structure.

(3.) This code only can combine all worksheets of the active workbook, if you want to merge worksheets from multiple workbooks, this code will not work.

    I want to combine sheets... but I also want to add a column ("A") in new sheet (combined) where the name of the sheet "Sheet1", "Sheet2" will be placed on all rows copied from respected sheets.. so i will know which data has come from which sheet.

      You can try Kutools' Combine function, it can insert the data information of each sheet in the front of data in combined sheet.
